Game: TES IV: Oblivion
Requires: Shivering Isles
Author: Khamuy
Release Date: 08/07/10


Forgive my English and be patient, this is not my mother language.

1. Information on the Mod

This mod makes compatible the mods :

Star x Vanilla Vampires Revised (Beta 2)



Vampire Hunting - Order of the Virtuous Blood (1.8.1)


Both mods add new and different content to Oblivion Game and could be played together, however, both of them rely on the completion of the same vanilla quest (MS23-Order of the Virtuous Blood) in order to expand the action trought new quests.

After completing this quest some events will be triggered, but depending of your load order one of the two mods will have its questline structure overwrited by the other, breaking the questline.

This patch rewrites the quest script solving the incompatibility problems and making possible play with both together keeping both questlines.

It also rebalances the faction relations, vampires and vampire hunters will hate each other on sight.

This patch DO NOT modify/rebalanced any vampires. Still any vampire and NPC added by each mod retains its original stats.

(if the authors give their permission, maybe in the future we can rebalance stats and interlink questlines ...)

2. Installation

Extract (decompress) the .esp to your oblivion directory, the default isC:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data\

Mark the box next to the "Order of the Virtuous Blood" plugin.

Alternately, extract someplace else. Then move the esp. to Oblivion\Data\.
Merge the new folder with the old. Often you can simply drop the "Data" file into the "Oblivion" folder Make sure the
files go into the proper directories they were in when you downloaded the mod.

------- Wrye Bash Users -----

Arrange your load order and move Starx-OVB Patch.esp to a place AFTER StarX Vanilla Vampires Revised.esp and Vampire Hunting - Order Of The Virtuous Blood.esp

So yout load order should be something like this.

StarX Vanilla Vampires Revised.esp
Vampire Hunting - Order Of The Virtuous Blood.esp
Starx-OVB Patch.esp
Bashed Patch.esp

The patch is marked as mergeable and could be in any place AFTER starx and vampire hunting mods.

Rebuild your Bashed Pacth and deactivate it.

(Remenber, StarX mod rebuilds the interior of some Cells, so depending what mods you have its load order could be important (it depends on you, (((CHECK THE READMES))))
This patch DO NOT modify any interior Cell (yet).

3. Version History

1.0 version, first release

4. Conflicts, Known Issues, and Troubleshooting

It Will conflict with ANY mod that modifies the Vanilla questline MS_23 (If you have any other mods that touches that quest, well, star x vanilla vampires and vampire hunting will conflict with that anyway)

I played Oblivion with 150+ mods, and it was tested without any further problems nor any other conflicts.

HOWEVER: Remenber that both mods add vampires to the same locations, making some of its quests far more difficult and complicated.
I included the readmes of both mods for clarifications purposes, check it for further information.

I am not responsible if the dificulty level is more than you can cope with...
